  2. Restate Must Knows must be SPECIFIC, not categorical.
  3. The Conclusion should be powerful and separate from the Restate Must Knows.
  4. End with "Thank You"
  5. Repeat Questions at the end.
  6. Any video you use should be less than 30 seconds (be sure to turn up the volume and make full-screen ahead of time).

  8. Your Reason for choosing the topic should be separate from your Credibility.
